The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that is one of our body's first lines of defense against disease. A nasal wash keeps this layer of mucus moist, clean and healthy. And compared to other nasal wash techniques, using the Neti Pot™ is easy. A nasal wash can be as routine as brushing your teeth.
Use it anytime to:
- Remove excess mucus due to congestion.
Rid nostrils of pollen and other allergens.
Cleanse the nasal membranes of dust, smoke, or other airborne contaminants.
Relieve nasal dryness due to air travel.
Improve flow of breath before doing relaxation or meditation techniques.
Remember a nasal wash is not a substitute for medical treatment. Anyone with chronic inflammation of the nasal passages or other ear, nose, or throat disorders should seek medical attention.
How to use a Neti PotTM
To use the Neti PotTM, simply prepare the saline solution by adding 8 oz of warm water and a heaping ¼ teaspoon of non-iodized salt to your Neti PotTM. Then turn your head to the side, and insert the spout into the upper nostril. Raise the Neti PotTM so the saline solution flows into the nose and out of the lower nostril. Full, detailed instructions are packaged with the Neti PotTM.
